Isreal again in Cameroon? Have we forgotten the lake Nyos gas disaster? We welcome projects. But we must dine with these guys using a very long spoon.

They are sensing danger about our possibly sovereignty (Southern Cameroon).

Please country men, these guys are isreakites. They are too intelligent and maybe too intelligent for us. So lets look around well and continue to be looking around.

But i am so skeptical

To say Israel triggered or caused the Lake Nyos tragey is a positive test for stupidity. The disaster was a volcanic gas cloud (CO2 and others) and the geyser currently installed at the lake proves the point.

A Cameroonian who still believes in the Israeli weapon test theory is sadly wrong. Very wrong in deed. The fact is that the lake can release gas again. The degassing geyser is helping to avoid gas accumulation under the weight of the water column above.

Brother Njong,

It shows how you so called Southern Cameroonians are so enslaved by your fanatism.
Your so called Southern CameroonFrancophones or Anglophones (CAMEROUN) belongs to all Cameroonians (Francophones or Anglophones. Weither you like it of not.
Israel never tested any weapon in Cameroon.
You Guys, wake up and embrace the future with all Patriotic Cameroonians.
Don't live your life miserable. You are too young to live dreaming that Cmaeroon will be divided in Kingdoms.
God Bless you!

why dont you shut the hell up
we are not talking about your land in mbouda or your country in la republique du cameroun for god sake, we owners of our land are talking about facts and attrocities your people are committing on us that the world knows,
soo stop writing on this forum . if you lack where to write visit www.camerooninfonet.com. thats where you people belong.

Going back to the lake nyos disaster,scientists have carried out all sort of test and have proven that it was natural,hence the reason for the de-gasing projects.For those who still think it was man-made,why don't you come up with facts and evidents.
That will be interesting rather than wasting all your time on this southern Cameroon nonsense which has no future.Go ahead and challenge the scientist,that will be perfect.

kabuin

i don't want to believe that Isreal did such a wicked act, but where in the world have we got a similar incident ?, is lake Nyos the only emmitter of such a gas? Now that there's organised crime going on in the world, can scientists and the other researchers ever release the truth behind this tragedy? Well only God knows why lake Nyos has such a property only.
The Isrealite seem to have realised that Bamender needs help only these last days that we are arising for our soverein right, could this be a genuin concern or another trick of the devil?
Well in anything may God take the glory. If we were born to be slaves let it be but if not, then we will surely win battle.

Is the Israeli Ambassador to Cameroon, H.E. Benny Omer related to Omer Yembe of the GCE board?

Lake Nyos is not the only lake that has experienced lethal gas emissions.There are a couple more in South America.
Though a natural process, its not uncommon for it to be taken advantage of by some Countries for Military and Scientific Tests.
When peat and carboniferous sediments at the bottom of a lake decompose, carbondioxide is produced.It can escape into the atmosphere through fissures in underlying rocks. However, if large quantities suddenly escape,it can lead to death to man and animals. Cardondioxide being heavier than air displaces oxygen and the sudden lack of oxygen and the huge concentration of CO2 leads to dead by axphyxiation. Plant life remains unaffected as plants are happy with CO2.This was observed during the Lake Nyos Disaster.
But just because we donot have evidence to proof foul play doesnot means it didnot happen.
There is a limit to how much you can trust science.The Social Construction of Science has shown that science is not always neutral. It serves a purpose. There have been scientific experiments to proof that the Caucasian is more intelligent than the Negroid.And people believed it. But offcourse it was faulty and meant to serve the purpose of the master - 'Whiteman'.Just because we accept certain (bad)scientific laws doesnot make them true. We accept them because we cannot disproof them.
Also he who funds the researchers, most often than not determines the course, purpose and eventual dessimination and usage of the results. The people and part of the world affected can determine how much is done to find solutions.
HIV/AIDS is mostly an African/Less Developed Countries(LDC)affair. For it to stimulate better funding, it will have to be an issue in Europe and America, of which it is not as of now. Giving AID(S) to African Nations is not the same as helping pay school fees for your siblings. People have the right to be pessimistic about the motives of certain donations, Isreal is no exeption.
I am not in any way insinuating that all Foreign AID(S) is/has a Secret Agenda.
It pays sometimes to be pessimistic.

Ndiks

Israel's interest ti development in NW cannot just be for the sake of humanitarian grounds.Such help has invariably be on humanitarian ground.I/we don't know what is behind such humanitarian help.When the lake Nyos disaster happen,Israel came with doctors,and red cross military vehicles with "doctors" to offer help.
It is twenty years today or so,Israel is back with interest in development,along Mbassador is a team of NGO's whom he say were those who made Israel achieve a lot in development.Well,well,well.Since twenty years,it is now that Israel opened the page of NW.Good and fine.But why ONLY "North West"?What is special in that choice?

Eden Morcho

There is no evident to support the fact that the Lake Nyos incident was a man made disaster. However all the literature out there, supporting the fact that it is natural have never explain way it has only happen in Cameroon thus fare. We all know that there are thousands of lake in the world that are in the same or similar environment as lake Nyos in terms of geographical and physical topography. However, that doesn’t stop us from receiving any aids from Israel or any other country for that matter. Yes if we accept the fact that they are responsible for the cause, then, may be it is time to pay for what they did. We can not hold any body accountable for one thing, and even if we hold somebody accountable then we will still need help to develop out community to guard against any thing similar. Yes Israel like many other countries, more than likely is given aids with the intension of getting something it return. It could just be political support from the Cameroonian gov’t or row material of some kind but there is something they will get.

Dr A A Agbormbai

Good question Ndiks, why only the NW province?

dango tumma

ISREAL MUST WAIT TILL SOUTHERN CAMEROONS REGAIN ITS INDEPENDENCE ,THEN IT CAN CAME UNDER A STATE TO STATE PROTOCOL.
ANY THING UNDER LA REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN, WHICH SOUTHERN CAMEROONS(AMBAZONIA) DONT BELONG IS NOTHING BUT BAD.

Ndiks

Tumma,
Israel should wait,or OPEN up why the are heading but to the NorthWest ONLY with Development.What is their motive?

Ndiks

I could hazard a guess why Israel is taking the road to NW development.Either Israel is sure that Ambazonia will be independent and will Do all to uncover what happened in Lake Nyos.many questions are left unanswered as to how a gas will kill poeple with burns on their bodies.Scientist are yet to answer this question.Or the believe that by bringing development to the NW,they may divert the Restoration of Ambazonia's Independence,also with the believe that they are the only ones fighting for enfranchisement,leaving SW in the coal.A miscalculation.No one has been accuse,but this rush of interest in NW development is a jigsaw.Questionable you know!They could also be doing so on behalf of LRC.Let them open up why ONLY NW.

dango tumma

REMEMBER BROTHERS AND SISTERS EXCLUDING THE STRANGERS(RICARDO ET ALL)
WE WERE ONE,AND HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ONE THROUGH ALL THE CENTURIES UP TILL 1972
THAT SOUTHERN CAMEROONS BECAME NORTHWEST/
SOUTHWEST.
FROM AN EX-POST OFFICE CLERK TURN PRESIDENT.
THEY ARE ALL OF EVIL INTENT AND ARE VERY USELESS. THOSE OUR WOMEN WHO ARE MARRYING THEM IS CALLED LOVE OUT OF IGNORANCE.THE MORE YOU KNOW THEM THE MORE YOU ARE GONNA HATE THEM LIKE HELL.

Titi

It will take quite long,I doubt if someone in the name of researchers and scientists will ever change my mind about the Lake Nyos Disaster,what is certain is president Biya and his foreign companions know the truth about the incident.God knows best.

Is left for anyone to see it in his/her own way.
I don't trust this socall foreign aid,they go one step ahead and 4 behind indirectly.

Emmanuel Ngang

i will well not refuse NWP to accept gifts from any country. We should be open but still remain very tactful with who every we are dealing with

Aaron Agien Nyangkwe

I am very scared of Isrealites. For those sceptists on the veracity of the neutron bomb test in lake Nyos, why has the Isrealites never reacted to the Front page story of the Philadelphia Enquirer that carried the story of the bomb test? Congolese Presidenbt Sasoou Nguesso even said that the Lake Nyos thing was a bo,b blast.
Again, we should not forget that it was the Isrealites that were behind the circumventing of Fru Ndi's victory in 1992. For those who do not know, The streets of Cameroon were invaded by thousand of people on October 12 1992 chanting Fru Ndi's victory and calling for the proclamation of the result. Biya was at the point of giving up until the Isrealites concocted the idea of having the Chairman of the SDF to call off people from the streets. According to reliable sources, the Isrealites used an influential SDF official by then to move up to the Chairman to tell him call his people off the street. The ploy was that the supreme court was going to delare him winner and that if street demonstrations continue, Mr Biya was going to order for fire to be opened on the civilians.
Ni John Fru Ndi was cajolled into signing that communiqué that called for people to remain calm in their homes and wait for the proclamation of the results. The communiqué was read several times on CRTV radio and immediately, results trends placing Biya ahead of Fru Ndi started being aired for the first time since voters retreated from the polls. And Mr Biya deplored troops on the streets and that sealed the way for him to hijack the peoples' verdict.
I come from the North West Province, and vehemently oppose any help from the so called Isrealites. Let them channel the help to the Palestinian neighbours who badly need it, now.

goo

Aoron,
u are 102 % right. I am with you. These guys should leave the north west in peace. I am also a northwesterner.

Landa should not full us. Langa never was in Mandel,a agenda. Until the Isrealites would answer questions from Southern Cameroon, we should not accept anything from them. Even if it means we are dying of hunger.

Remember that these guys have strategies. They want to gradually infiltrate bthe North West Province.

These are all spies. Just like the CIA entered Bamenda and too away a daoughter of the soil in brought daylight. These were Americans. Has Biya anything to say about the abduction of Cameroonian National by foreign troops in our land?

Isreal, please leave us in peace. We don,t need your aid. Whta we want is the compensation of the develish act u committed against our people. this compensation, shall be determined by us and not for u to make fake proposals

JB Samba

Remember Isreal was the first to send aid and personel to Nyos immediately after the L. Nyos gas disaster and AT VERY SHORT NOTICE (no time for signing of any papers). The deal had already been planned and ratified between Isreal and LRC.

There is nothing to convince me that L. Nyos gas disaster was a natural phenomenon. Just the fact that Isreal has never stepped forward to refute the 'allegations' of her involvement in this 'man-made' disaster, renders her guilty of the crime.

Let Isreal leave NW alone, PERIOD.

Martin

Why the NW? Israel has to start somewhere!

Ignorance is very dangerous. Those who doubt the explosion was a natural disaster should be aware that a geyser has been installed at the lake to flash off CO2 from bottom waters. Doubters should also orient their children to study chemistry and physics so that they can know better.

If the disaster was an under-water weapon test as claimed by some ignorant people, we would have seen the nuclear fall out. A lot of it! Nigeria would have invaded in legitimate self-defense!

In any weapon test, across all species of nuclear weapons, there is always the telltale radionuclides of cesium, plutonium, deuterium, uranium, etc.., which are “very hot” and cannot be hidden. By “very hot”, I mean that these particles undergo further radioactive decay by emitting a gamma ray(s) and/or subatomic particles, all of which are detectable for a long-long-long time down to minute concentrations below background levels.

Remember the nuclear accident at Chernobyl which the Soviet Union could not hide! The plume was detected in Western Europe and alarmed before the Soviet Union could meekly admit the accident. A nuclear plume gives a loud signal and the fallout has species that have long half-lives, over 500 years!.

Many people in Cameroon are CRAZY. False imaginations are exploited by the annexationist regime to paint the people as stupid. The honour of facts is the beginning of wisdom.

Martin

Ma Mary

It is unfortunate that this rumor about the Israeli neutron bomb continues to persist. I am not a friend of the Biya regime, but this particular stigma is unwarranted. Biya was visiting Israel at the time, as I clearly remember. Trying to be a good host, Israel responded instantly to the disaster. Unlike Cameroon and other places, Israel is constantly on war footing and can assemble a major rescue team in an hour and that is what it did. Unfortunately the Francocamerounese government has a deep culture of secrecy and does not care about the thoughts and feelings of the people, and would have done the neccessary scientific tests to disprove the RUMOUR and to communicate to the people. If you are interested in how the NEUTRON BOMB works, this is a good start. Even today, tests can be done to prove or disprove the neutron bomb theory once and for all.

Is the rumour of "bilingual" sexual predation by the Biyacrats true or false? Let them sue the newspapers to court so that they may reveal their evidence or lack of evidence.

N.K. Foncha

Hi folks
I am from NW too and to be honest I'never read so many nonsenses before. stupid!
About Lake nyos, if it was a neutron bomb blast as you say, then I have one question for you: did yoy see the disaster made by a neutron bomb before? Ain't necessary to go to hiroshima, nor to Nagasaki, nor chernobyl!!!
After a neutron bomb blast, there is nothing left but a desert! Since the lake nyos disaster and even today, the plants are so healty that means they had enough CO2 to breath!!!
After a neutron bomb blast, people cannot step the ground zero within hours coz evrything is spoiled and radioactive!
If you remember late Aroun Tazief drinking water from the lake nyos, he was not wearing any protective mask.
About Biya stealing Fru Ndi votes on 1992, thanks God he did! Fru Ndi would have lead us to more poverty.Look what's happening in the SDF?!!!

Emmanuel Awemu

Neutron bomb or not. There is something phishy with regards to the explosion in Lake Nyos.Why did it happen only at Nyos?
I was almost a victim to that incident if my uncle had honored his promise to me and his staff at G.S Bafmen( about 10 miles from Nyos)for an excursion to the lake that weekend of the incident. Oh well as others have contributed above, if Israel is helping the North West Province in developmental projects, why not accept it. The truth about what happened at Lake Nyos will come out some day. Do you guys remeber 'Deep Throat' in the Water Gate scandal?
